BEACH HOUSE - PEACEFUL WATERFRONT SUNSETS - PERFECT FOR FAMILIES

Vashon Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Our large, comfortable beach house on Seattle’s tranquil Vashon Island is just the place for a group or family to relax, unwind, and enjoy each others’ company. It sits on Quartermaster Harbor, on the quiet inside of the island, literally on the water at high tide and on the long sand and pebble beach at low tide. Enjoy the view, swim, or explore the harbor by kayak (two single and one double) or rowing/sailing dinghy. Alongside the house are two pleasant sleeping cabins, one with a queen bed, the other with a double bed, both with water views.

Outside stairs lead from the parking area to the garden and from the garden to the main house. The recently remodeled top floor is open with a modern, fully stocked kitchen, fireplace, roomy living area and dining table that seats up to 12. A smaller adjoining room has comfy couches and a large flat screen TV (cable). There is also a full bath. The bottom floor (outside stairs) has a spacious bedroom with a king size bed, a smaller bedroom with a double and two twin beds, a bath with shower and a washer and dryer.

Both floors have decks facing the water and sunsets. There is also a hot tub on the water.

If you want to use one of the boats we have plenty of life jackets for children and adults.

If you enjoy our vacation home even half as much as we do you’ll have a wonderful time.

I am a retired high school teacher and my husband is a retired physician. We are avid travelers and enjoy our children and grand children. I grew up in Washington and we have lived in Seattle for more than forty years.

Linda Straley purchased this house in 2004

We bought our beach house as a family retreat. The location is perfect for us because it is close to Seattle where we and our family live. The grand children especially love the beach and the water. On the Island we enjoy biking, hiking several trails, long walks on the beach at low tide and the friendly town of Vashon.

There is kayaking and beach combing, walking and biking. August is blackberry season with great picking all around. Then we make pies and ice cream and jam. In winter we light a fire in the stone fireplace, curl up with a book and watch the storms roll in over the water.

Great home with beautiful views and all amenities provided. Perfect for families. Only wish outside bedroom had a bath so would not have to go to main house.

RELAX ON THE WATER

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house for the weekend of my son's wedding on the island, and it was perfect for extended family to stay. Every sleeping area looks out over the water, including the two sleeping cabins that provide additional privacy. We used the kayaks and the hot tub and the media room and the kitchen--all well-equipped and in great condition. The house is at the top of Quartermaster Bay, so although it feels remote, it's less than a five-minute drive to Vashon Highway. We enjoyed Snapdragon Cafe: they provided a rehearsal dinner to go that we enjoyed in the spacious main floor of the house. (I want to have a lazy week here next summer!)

WONDEFUL, COMFORTABLE HOME WITH ALL THE AMENITIES YOU WANT!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I recently stayed at the beach house for our 9th annual girls' weekend. It was the perfect location. The view is beautiful, the kitchen is huge and is fully stocked, and the house has lots of spots for hanging out. Not to mention that it's RIGHT on the water (no really, you can see the water below when it's high tide). There are a few small cabins on the property not attached to the main house which was perfect in case anyone wanted a little more quiet to sleep. This house was fantastic and we will definitely visit it again!

VASHON HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
My family (6 of us) stayed for a weekend just before Christmas. As soon as we walked inside the house, we all "oohed and ahhed" over the kitchen and the views (we're big into cooking and water). We loved using the kitchen for beautiful family meals, and the comfy couches for reading and looking at the water. We had a lot of fun using the hot tub. We even jumped in freezing Quartermaster Bay, feet from the hot tub (but be careful for oyster shells). The house also has a neat history that the owner's have documented in a binder that they leave out for guests to read. The sleeping arrangements are unique. There are a ton of beds and 1 bathroom in the downstairs part of the house. The other bedrooms are located in "pods" steps from the kitchen door. I loved the little pod I stayed in - lots of windows overlooking the bay. It wasn't an issue for my husband and I not to have direct access to a bathroom, but we did put my older parents in the lower part of the house so that they could have direct access. Vashon Island is quaint and rural. The house's location got us downtown to eat and shop, or to the best coffee shop, within a few minutes by car. Staying in this house made our trip to Vashon Island really special, and I hope we can stay again!

WONDERFUL HOME ON QUARTERMASTER: SO MUCH TO ENJOY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation at this home, celebrating the 4th of July on Vashon Island. We were a group of 6 adults and 5 children, aged 1-6. The house itself has plenty of space. The kitchen is modern and well-stocked; it's big enough for multi-family dinners and the two dishwashers kept our cleanup time minimal. The views are amazing from just about every room, the two decks, and the hot tub - you truly are right on the water at this house. We spent lots of time relaxing on the decks, in the hot tub, and in the garden above the house. Low tides were especially fun, and we enjoyed beachcombing for treasures. The house is stocked with kayaks and a row boat, and we used these each day. We also paid $90 for a week-long family membership at the Vashon Island Golf and Country Club, giving us access to a swimming pool.

The owners prepare a wonderfully maintained home, and were very helpful in arranging our stay and making us feel as welcome as family. We truly had everything we needed during our stay. We'll definitely be back again!
